UWE and Suncoast Diving are excited to congratulate Bronson, Ed, and Bruce of successfully completing the PADI Open Water course. The three started their training on the Thursday the 25th and have been hard at it over the past four days.
Day One, had the students working on their knowledge reviews in the morning, then they did a three hour pool session. Everyone did an amazing job in the pool and we were able to complete Confined Dives 1 through 3. On the following day, we hit the pool in the morning, and we were able to complete the final 2 Confined Water skills dive in 2 hours. The afternoon was spent in the class working through all the bugs using the RDP.
On Day Three, everyone headed out to Tuwanek for their first two Open Water dives, everyone did an amazing job with all their skills. The surface conditions were a little rough so some of the Dive Flexible skills were put off until Sunday while out on the boat.
Day 4, went very well, our first dive was at Tuwanek Point, where we finished the Dive 3 skills, and had an excellent swimming Wolf Eel encounter in 30 feet of water, right near where the boat was anchored. On the econd dive we headed over to Pipers Point, so we could get some experience on deep wall dives.
Everyone had little problems with the course, once again congratulations to all! Dive conditions are great, visibilty is in the 30 – 50 ft range.

UWE would like to congratulate Bruno P. for his successful completion of the TDI Decompressions Procedures course. Last night Bruno and I headed out to the HMCS Chaudiere to complete his certifying dive. Our dive plan was for 150 ft, for 25 minutes, which was a bit deeper then what we actually did for our dive. In the end, the bottom time worked to 30 minutes with a max depth of 135ft.
As we left the bottom to our first decompression stop we had a short 14 minute obligation which was cut in half when we reached the 20 foot mark where we did our gas switch to 100 percent O2. Over all the dive time was 57 minutes. The visibility on the Chaudiere was about 50 foot once we hit the 90 ft mark.

UWE is in the process of switching over to a new theme. We are currently working on updating all of our internal links, and to connect the header to the various pages so the site will run smoothly. Please be patient, as it may take a couple of days to get everything up and running properly!

UWE and Suncoast Diving is excited to announce that we have three new Rescue Divers. Bruno, Ken and Jeremy were hard at over the past two dives working on their Rescue skills. Monday had us down in Tuwanek working on the many many confined water skills. Though not to hard as we still had time to make it down to check out the resident Octopus which is easily found on the Left Island.
Today had us out on the boat, conducting our Rescue Scenarios out at the Tuwanek Abyss. Over all all dives went off without a hitch. Visibility is a little murky down to 60 feet where it opens up nicely.
Check back soon as we UWE is working to complete Bruno’s Decompression course, and both Jeremy and Bruno are now ready to start their Dive Master training!
